What! Everyone knows there’s only a couple turns in a paper clip. And that paper clips are not fun. No fun with paper clips allowed! What Art Lebedev Studio has done is totally add metal to this legendary invention, curve it up a bit more than usual, and slap an excellent name on it. “Super Paper Clip!” it was named, later changed to the more Russian “Skrepkus.”

Are You Cuckoo for Nooka Fluff?

Are You Cuckoo for Nooka Fluff?

What we have here is a cute little watch. It is flexible rubber, digital, and is basically an arm-cuckoo clock. Kind of like a Rodger Rabbit sort of thing. More fantastic work from the folks at Nooka, right? Actually, not affiliated. Inspired by! Hannes Grebin submitted this to us (and half a dozen other design blogs) and I’m sure it’s about to blow up! Rightfully so?

*Blow up on the internets, I mean. I’m sure it works just fine. Have no fear! lol.

Intergalactic Fun Begins Early

Intergalactic Fun Begins Early

Do you see the look of defiance in this kid’s eyes? He’s like…Do what you want I’m gonna spill that bowl of Cheerios! Grrrr Tiger I like it! His mom on the other hand is going to have the time of her life trying to vacuum the crushed bits. Tough luck but kids are like that, they abide by Murphy’s Law that if things have to go-spill…they will. To counter this law a great arsenal to mommy’s aid is the Löopa Gyro Bowl.

Teeny-Tiny Dishwasher

Teeny-Tiny Dishwasher

From the size of it I know most people will go, “Tch, tch that’s a really small dishwasher!” But sweets this one’s for the double-income-no-children types and singles. That’s how specific designing is getting these days, and me being from the old school of thought of big happy families is finding it hard to digest! The sleek looking Gota is small enough to fit on the kitchen platform and has an eco-sense as well. Its one of those niche things that couples will like to show off about.

Not All Who Condiment Are Lost

Not All Who Condiment Are Lost

For truly, it is the one who seeks “Balance,” the salt and pepper shaker stack, that finds their food seasoned just right. And on top of that, (or should I say beneath it,) a dish for gravy, sauce, or sugar. Or whatever else you need. Find this set in the home of the feng shui attentive – or those who love to use rocks for shakeable seasoning containers.

Earplugs Become A Battery And Then Charge

Earplugs Become A Battery And Then Charge

This isn’t another case of identity crisis, it’s just that the B-headphones transform to AA batteries! What I’m telling you here is that these headphones come in 3 pieces: two earbuds and a housing case. Plug the two earbuds on both the ends of the housing… and pesto! you got yourself an AA battery. Now put that battery into the main charging station and recharge the Bluetooth buds! A telltale light indicator lets you know when they are juiced up so that you can pop them out and use them again. Did I mention WICKED IDEA!
